Yaquina Head

 The Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area includes 5 short trails, a visitor center, and a lighthouse.  We'll do all of them, conditions permitting.   The modest elevation gain includes stairs as well as paths.  Bring a snack and lunch--although if it's not pleasant weather for picnicking, we may opt for buying lunch indoors on the way home.  Please sign up no later than April 4. Due to traveling, please sign up via email (no texts).
